Too big to fail: scaling systems the smart way at Splunk

Learn how to manage a busy, business-critical Atlassian implementation of Data Center versions of Jira, Confluence, and Bitbucket.

All growth comes with its fair share of challenges. For Splunk, the growth they've experienced - both organically and through acquisitions - has been rapid and made the process of scaling their systems trickier than they'd like. Deploying Data Center applications has provided Splunk the ability to scale with confidence and maintain the availability of mission-critical tools, some that they are running 24/7.

In this session you will learn:

  • Important attributes to test, automate, and measure for a successful operation of deployments
  • Critical configuration and deployment techniques
  • Infrastructure and application performance monitoring at Splunk
  • Insights from an administration pro
